You are a good servant of Christ,
When you can be putting things out;
And yet not becoming enticed,
Or ever shedding any doubt.
Then you will be fed by the Word,
Of the Christian faith as taught;
Through everything you have heard,
Within the truth that you have sought.
Do nothing with the godless tales,
Like elderly women have told;
For they take you down the wrong trails,
While the story does unfold.
The best way to get rid of the strife,
By changing the way that you live;
Train yourself to a godly life,
For more momentum you can give.
Godly living gives peace and hope,
A faith for now and the future;
So you will be able to cope,
As you become a new creature.
It is able to be trusted,
And deserves complete acceptance;
Ridding yourself what you lusted,
That continues your existence.
We always work hard and struggle,
While living a godly life;
Through-out the day how you juggle,
Between all the trials and strife.
Place confidence in the true God,
He is the Savior for us all;
If you believe honor and laud,
So you do not stumble and fall.
Insist on these things and teach them,
Not a factor should be your age;
Ensuring those God may condemn,
So they can get on the same page.
Make your speech by showing your love,
Through behavior and purity;
Filled with your faith from up above,
Showing of your maturity.
